We feel like we've practically grown up with Lauren Conrad — don't you? Most of us were in high school or college when Conrad's reality show Laguna Beach premiered. Since that time, we've watched Conrad go through breakups, star in another awesome TV show — The Hills — release best-selling novels and always, always show up to events with a smile and a killer outfit. Now, were set to embark on a new journey with her: Wedding planning. Lauren Conrad engagement ring

Of course, millions of fans flocked to the internet to congratulate her, inspiring Conrad to add to her original post thanks to all her fans for their overwhelming response of love and best wishes.

Conrad and Tell, a law student, began dating in 2012 — but Conrad admitted that prior to Tell, she'd done a lot of hunting for the right guy.

"The last year and a half," she told Allure, "I was dating a lot, and it's slim pickings."

Conrad's past beaus include former co-stars Brody Jenner and Jason Wahler, who married model Ashley Slack this weekend. Neither of those relationships with Conrad seemed to end under the best of circumstances, so we're thrilled that Conrad has found someone truly worthy of her love and attention.

We can't wait to hear more about her wedding planning, and of course, we're hoping MTV will put together a wedding special so all her fans can have a front-row seat for her big day.
